Karel believes that everyone has a unique role to play in the world, focusing on those with whom we live, work and relax. We can all experience life to the full, even though we do not get the same publicity as the people we may see presented to us in the media every day. The key to realizing our personal success is taking control of our lives, not living in the shadow of public opinion. Karel’s anecdotes show in a practical way how each of us can achieve the personal success we want, or make the dramatic step to realizing we already have it right in front of us, but just have not been able to see or grasp it yet.

Goal Achievement Strategies, can be purchased at Amazon.com

Goal Achievement Strategies is a book in the psychoframe (psychological framework) series that Karel de Laat created as part of a major organization development program for a large steel works. He had to produce a simple, practical, but powerful, supervisory management and goal achievement program that everyone in the enterprise could understand and implement on the shop floor. In addition, each part of the program had to be linked so that managers, supervisors, operators, customer service and all other support staff worked on principles that reinforced teamwork. The Goal Achievement part of the program formed the base of an interlocking structure that held the team together. Every member of the team used the same goal achievement principles to structure their work in a way that extended the base principles of plan and initiate by adding incentives for innovation, quality checking and standardization of work processes.

Practical Management Strategies, can be purchased at Amazon.com

Practical Management Strategies evolved from work that Karel de Laat did with a wide range of public companies in Australia. His consultancy, de Laat & Co, tended to work for entrepreneurs who were drawn to a smaller entrepreneurial business that created leadership and management solutions based on their client’s corporate vision. These solutions were always driven by a team approach that involved every member of the organization. Often, this involved interviewing hundreds of team members and involving all team members by participation in futuristic workshops focused on innovation. The end result was a people focused leadership and management approach based on empowering every member of the team. This approach is at the heart of the material in this book. Karel explains how the quest of allowing every team member to overcome their frustration at seeing better solutions but not being able to implement them became the base from which organization development would flow.

Career Management Strategies, can be purchased at Amazon.com

Career Management Strategies is a guide to developing and implementing a strategy to decide on your career and succeed in this chosen career. It contains the sort of insights you would expect from a psychologist who has spent his entire career giving career advice to people in all walks of life. Not only is the advice practical, but there are tools to help you make difficult decisions about choosing your career and implementing your career plan. Most importantly, Karel gives many examples of how others have struggled to make the right decisions and how they had to work hard to reach their goals. It is this appreciation of the many aspects of making good career decisions and creating and implementing career plans that makes Career Management Strategies such a useful book. Nevertheless, Karel emphasizes that you are the only one who can decide if you are travelling down the right path.
